Shopkeepers have illegally encroached upon the historical clock tower of Husainabad trust, which was constructed in 1857. The previous government of Akhilesh Yadav spent nearly 250 crores on its beautification, but the encroachment has led to a downfall in its beauty. Around 300 vendors put up their shops around the park. People installing their swings inside the parks have dug out the ground at various places. Attempts to get the encroachment eliminated saw protests from the shopkeepers. People flock to see this historical spot. Eateries too, open there at night. Some contractors have started illegal parking areas. According to Nasir Naqwi, OSD of Husainabad trust, the government did not try wholeheartedly to prevent the encroachment. The administration has been approached for action, and it has issued notices to the encroachers.
